Media Fridays
We'll post videos or photos that will hopefully inspire trail shredding weekends.

Last week I lamented the loss of my bottle.  This week I found it!! 

I was bombing down the Goat Hill descent and as I hit the bottom section full of root drops I realized how jarring that section was... 

*blurry pictures don't do trails justice...
and how impossible it would be to see an errant bottle while riding that section.  
So, I walked back up and look what I found!

That brought some joy to my day and energy to my ride.  That is, until the finish.  And I started swiping worms off me.  I used the rear window of the pterodactyl to see my back and I just about freaked out - they were F'n EVERYWHERE.  Suddenly I was filled with a rage and hatred I have not known before.  (If you haven't surmised this yet, I am NOT a bug person)

I haven't done much internet recon on my race this Sunday, but word from TheMutt is that it is a fast one.  I did see some strava data from the area (wasn't the race) and it looks like a lot of up and down all over the course.  It'll be a new course (to me) so I'll go out and see what I can do.  I think I read somewhere that it is a "more open" course so passing shouldn't be an issue this time - I hope.

Not much of a Media Friday, I know.  But I've got some lame  exciting training early this morning at work so I'm out the door!!

Get out and ride!

Oh, and not to jinx ourselves, but we may have just become a more permanent fixture in the Charlotte community - just went under contract on a house... that was fast!
